Algona friends of Austin Creed have received cards the past week announcing his marriage. The Carroll Herald reports it as follows: A. W. Creed and Miss Annie E. Brower were united in marriage at the bride's home in Moville yesterday, and arrived on the afternoon train in Carroll, where they will make their home." Mr. Creed is a popular young man, who for several years has been in his present position as express messenger on the Sioux City line. He has always been faithful in the performance of duty and is deservedly popular with superiors in the company. His bride is a young lady of worth, whose home is in Moville, and is in every sense deserving of her most excellent young husband.

Crum, the state university sprinter, has beaten the Yale and Harvard men, and is now the amateur champion runner of the United States and goes to England with our athletic team with a good chance of becoming the amateur champion of the world. He made 100 yards in 10 seconds flat. His victory has called out a clever editorial from the New York Press In ridicule of the eastern colleges: Who is this man Crum, and where is the University of Iowa, and why weren't these questions asked before by the proper committee of the Intercollegiate Athletic association, so that we should have been spared the unpleasant sight of this under-graduate of a prairie dog and grasshopper institution carrying off two first prizes from. Yale, Harvard, Princeton and the University of Pennsylvania? We are sure that if the proper committee had done its duty and found out who Crum was, this never, never would have happened. Some good reason would have been found to keep Crum out just as, nearly 20 years ago, good reasons were found to break up the inter-collegiate regatta when upstart Cornell and little Wesleyan had developed such impudent speed. What are college lawyers for except to keep Crums out of such contests to save the public and post graduate mind the shock of seeing first prizes going anywhere except where they belong; that is to say, to Yale, Harvard, Princeton and occasionally the University of Pennsylvania? It avails nothing now to make Crum out a professional on the ground, for instance, that the monogram "U. S. I." on his shirt looks like •"$." The mischief is done,_ The public mind has been shocked, has been shaken in the cardinal principle of its athletic creed—namely, that first prizes should go nowhere save to Yale, Harvard, Princeton and occasionally the University of Pennsylvania. It will be receptive of all sorts of heresies now. Next year it will be prepared to see a first prize sprinter from Kickapoo college or the University of, Oklahoma. The college lawyers were caught pappipg when they failed to hold tbe watch on Crum before receiving the entry of the University of Iowa, Avaunt. Aroint thee, Crum! 'Go get thee to thy grassboppery, thy prairie doggery I And come not back! Tbe college lawyers will see to it after, this that first prizes go where they rightfully belong, that is to say, to Yale, Harvard, Princeton and occasionally the University of Pennsylvania. . Nothing like the Mulroney game has been seen by ah since the old days of Aldrich, *Vic. Stough. Pettibone, et al,, when our nine faced the Emmetsburgers on their own ground and came home with impaired hearing. ' '•Edmonds Wins Again. Bert.
